The materials I like to work with are precious metals (gold & sterling silver, fine silver), goldfilled wires, pmc-precious metal clay, lampworkglass beads, gemstone beads, cabochons and non-precious metals.

"CARING FOR YOUR JEWELLERY"

Sterling Silver can tarnish and oxidize due to a reaction to chemicals and heat and body oils.
Over time, sterling silver will develop a mellow patina caused by ‘Oxidization’, which results in an ‘Antique’ look where tarnish builds up in the fine details giving your sterling silver jewelry a beautifull appearance. You may or may not like this so you should consider this before making any attempts at cleaning your jewelry.
The best way to preserve and encourage the tarnished ‘Antique’ look to sterling silver jewelry can be done by not cleaning the jewelry with water, and not wearing the jewelry in the shower or bath.
The best way to prevent tarnish is to wear your sterling silver jewelry as often as possible.
If your sterling silver does become tarnished, it is easily restored to its former glory by using warm water with a mild soap, rinsing it and then making sure to thoroughly dry it with a fine soft cloth.
Silver pastes, treated polishing cloths or other sterling silver cleaning materials can also be used to remove tarnish. The above tips can also be applied to gold filled jewellery,Treat gold filled with care because vigorous cleaning can wear away the precious coating! It is best to use a soft jewellery cloth to clean gold filled.
